The Mentally Healthy Workplace Alliance
As a member of the Alliance we will partner with all Australian workplaces through the National Workplace Initiative to create mentally healthy workplaces for business and workers – strengthening our community and our economy.
Chaired by Lucy Brogden, Chair of the National Mental Health Commission, the Alliance brings together business, unions, the mental health sector and regulators to promote mentally healthy workplaces. We know that work has a profound impact on our mental health and with 12.6 million Australians employed, it is an idea place to prevent mental illness and help people recover when they are unwell.
A National Workplace Initiative
Our Alliance over the last two years has prioritised work on a National Workplace Initiative. This has involved a discussion paper, a literature review and targeted consultations with stakeholders. The outcomes of this work found an appetite for a national initiative for all Australian workplaces.
We have now completed the scoping work and we are committed to extensive stakeholder engagement to gather input about how the National Workplace Initiative might be progressed.
